How can we improve SQL Prompt?

TABS TABS TABS PLEASE

In Format --> Tabs & Wrapping there is no option to keep and actual TAB character, instead a tab is converted to the user configurable number of spaces.

This one is especially important for me because we have other code checking for TABS not (2,3,4,6,8) spaces. I now need to run a powershell script to convert the spaces back to a TAB.

Would be great to allow TABS to remain as TABS.

        I use tabs to align portions of code giving both vertical and horizontal 'rivers' of white space to aid readability and the reformat function takes that away.
